move a 4.3 out of 1990 astrovan into 53 dodge B4B

Well its come to this, the van has been sitting around doing nothing. It has a strong engine and good trans. The truck has a bad flathead 6. The cost to rebuild it, is way more than I want to spend. I've never done this before, and would like to know to best way to proceed, and what electric has to stay with the engine n trans? I just want engine, trans and alternator. I also am looking to keep the trucks cab as original as possible.
. What would the weight change do to the front end. ( I have a 140in wheel base). Any heads up I can get on this project would really help. The clip is off the truck and tomorrows I start removal of the 4.3.......Thanks Micky steel
